CREATING THE GIANT BUTTERFLY
I used patchwork and appliqué techniques, as well as a method cutting sewing big areas of fabric loosely together, cutting out portions, sewing different fabrics into the gaps and then repeating on a smaller and smaller scale. The result is very rich, textured based layer.
The body of the butterfly also integrates gorgeous sparkling jewels and studs. Many of them came from old clothing I don't wear anymore :)
The process to create this piece was hugely time consuming, but very rewarding.
The flowers that grow in the enchanted forest are not ordinary, they spin!
Here’s how I used a cheap spinning flower base (bought in a carnival market) and turned it into a piece of art.
